Principal Bruce Stewart saw an opportunity to help 50 children in Africa who had little hope of ever going to school. The reason? The children are disabled or struggling to survive without their parents. The aftermath of the Ebola epidemic in Liberia left many children as orphans. In this video, Principal Stewart explains how his students learned the gift of giving at the Junipero Serra School and simultaneously helped the poorest of the poor in a truly life-memorable way.

The aftermath of the Ebola epidemic continues to be felt in West Africa. Many people are only able to eat one small meal each day. Orphaned children, if not rescued, are at great risk of being recruited by criminals and becoming criminals.
A brighter future for Africa’s orphans is possible with your help.
